Please add the surname first.
Use the format: SmithJohn in the name field, then add a description; here you can include a role, location, service dates etc plus any other information you think may be of interest, finishing with your name (you may be submitting on behalf of a family member). Don’t worry how much – or little – you write in the description box – everything helps!

Thank you.
